a telemarketer. [ ♪ theme music ♪ ] >> jennifer: the fiery attacks in libya that killed the american ambassador and three diplomat there is were quickly followed by fiery political rhetoric here at home. ambassador j. christopher stevens and three other u.s. officials were killed last night. details about the attacks are still coming in, but here is the latest of what we do know. back in july an incendiary ridiculous movie about muslims was released reportedly by a guy named sam sam sam bacile. he claims to be an israeli. it's not clear who he is, whether he is an israeli and whether a guy named sam bacile exists. but it was so offensive that the grand musti of jackpot condemned it. and roughly 2,000 demonstrators assembleed around the u.s. embassy in cairo. the diplomatic workers inside that embassy saw this protest developing and they understandably were worried about their safety by this situation that was developing. they calmed them down saying, the embassy of the united states in kay row condemns the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt religious feelings of muslims as we c
. and then he completely bungled his response to the libya situation and that didn't help. but then came the biggest mistake of all. that embarrassing 47% rant caught on tape. now, national polls are not always the best way to understand the state of the election. and for that, you've got to go to the swing states. and sorry mitt, but the pictures there are not much better. a "new york times" cbs quinnipiac poll shows that big margins exist among likely swing state voters. in pennsylvania, the president is up big. 54% to romney's 42%. he leads romney 53% to 44% in florida and in ohio, he leads by a full 10 points! 53% to 43%. the last one is really important because if history is any guide the road to th does run through ohio. no republican has ever won the white house without winning the state of ohio. no democrat has done it for over a half a century. so both candidates are in the state today and not believe me, for the first time. in fact, they have made these two candidates a combined 68 visits there this year. but
's attack in libya? >> you know, actually, jennifer, they were more than silent during that time. and they were unbelievably unifying. they talked about how important it was at times of international crisis to be together, the rhetoric for both george h. w. bush and ronald reagan was not at all political. in fact, george h. w. bush said we're not going to politsize things like this. this is a time for us to come together. and not only did mitt romney try to politicize this as you point out, in a panicked kind of way but you know -- a time limit on this, he was going to have it released at 12:00 midnight then he called the press and said look, i want to make the late news and i want to make the morning papers. so this embargo is lifted. you can take the statement at 10:30. so that showed people how he was trying to take what was a terrible tragedy and turn it into his own political advantage to. me, the guy is tone-deaf. you don't know that that's not going to come back to haunt you? >> jennifer: for sure. tone-dea

after mitt romney's disastrous comments on libya, which many observers thought would play in the president's favor. romney also has the money edge. it raised a record $35.6 million in august and has raised nearly $200 million overall. the only way to fight that kind of big money, that kind of big money spending is by voting and proving that your vote cannot be bought. joining me now from austin to talk about whether mitt romney can recover from this week's stumbles and what the obama campaign should be doing is wayne slater. wayne is a seen i don't know political writer for the dallas morning news and theco author of two very famous made george w. bush presidential," and "the architect: karl rove and the dream of absolute power." wayne is coming to tell us what is inside karl rove's brain. thank you for joining us inside "the war room." >> great to be with you, governor. >> great to have you back. after all we have seen and after all of these polls, it is over for romney? >> yeah, if we were playing texas hold'em, i think i would rather have preside
while we're -- in a time of risk when we have people over in egypt and libya you know, their lives are at stake and she's making a political statement about it, people are ready for somebody that isn't just looking for the rock star. somebody who isn't trying to creating jocks and solutions for the -- creating jobs and solutions for the district. >> jennifer: what are your polls telling you, do you actually have a chance? >> oh, yeah, definitely. polls tell us if the people get to know me, we win this election. right now, we're neck and neck. we're virtually in a tie. our i.d., our identification of who i am, what i stand for is going up every day. every day goes up, we pick up all of the persuadables, all of the independents that are looking for something different looking for a real solution. >> jennifer: that's encouraging. moderate republicans should be yours for the taking. i want to play a clip from your latest campaign ad. >> after the fire at the mill, michele bachmann never called the workers. >> didn't r
